Last March, we announced how the Blog Herald had gotten a new facelift design-wise and our future plans for adding new services, resources and blogging guides. One of these plans was a Blog Conference Guide, being put together by Easton Ellsworth, using the Google Calendar and we are pleased to report that this resource is finally up and running!:
“Here is a list of upcoming 2009 blogging events and meetups for bloggers. Feel free to use the map and calendar to help you plan your next trip! – The Blog Herald team. Please contact us if you have any suggestions for this resource! If you like this resource, please tell your friends!
